of defense in a very long time. >> tough touptalk from stiantor lindsay graham on defense nominee chuck hagel. the senator is not backing down and demanding answers on the bengazi attack. the obama administration defended hagel and we'll hear from the president's chief of statch at this hour. i am shannon green. america's news headquarters live starts right now. we upon begin in vat vat city, 10s of thousands vatican city where 10s of thens went to see pope benedict xvi. he shocked the world by becoming the first pope in six centuries resigned. the pontiff asked them to pray for him and the next point all of this as cardinals are arriving in rome. there is it a commuter generated images of what happen conclave. they will elect one of the group to elect a leader by secret ballot. the archbishop said all talk of potential candidates end. >> when we go into the conclave all of that stops. it is silence inside of the conclave and the really focus is on the power of the holy spirit. i am looking to this as sort of a very, very super retreat. you just start to pray, and the only indication of how t
and the upper chamber. >> but he has such a strong personal relationship with lindsay graham, and lindsay graham is so personally invested in his 2014 re-election and being seen as the guy who is fighting the obama administration on this, so i kind of feel like -- it's just a guess, but my thought is that graham will eventually drop it. that will allow mccain to drop it. that will allow them to follow suit. then you have a new precedent. let's say you get to the floor with this vote, and it's 55-45 or 57-43. a party line vote is not entirely new, but that's close to a new phenomenon too for defense secretary for a cabinet nominee, and if that becomes the new rule for cabinet nominees going forward, what happens when the next president comes along and his or her party does not control the senate. if that's the new norm that's established, you have a big problem there. >> oh. >> no different from the senate. remember, john mccain was the guy who negotiated that deal to stop the nuclear option before? remember, he was the one that stood in the way of the very idea of filibustering cabinet nominees,
that senators are opposing hagel. one is lindsay graham, and senator iaot have real questions about benghazi, and the other hand senator has questions about hagel. both of those together, are causing real problem, and a lot of the wounded on hagel are self inflicted. lou: and waleed as you read that letter from white house revealing, that the president did not contact anyone in the libyan government, that he relied upon his secretary of state, who has said she had no role in the days affairs. what is your reaction? >> well, look, lou, we really don't have the big picture in details about what happened in benghazi. i keep repeating that the key point is, what was the perception of the administration of the threat existing? did they consider that our location in be benghazi is surrounded by 10 jihadi training centers and had taken all procedures or not? this would have to be answered. but is probably now the more important is statement by senator harry reid, in a time of war, in a time of threat against american, precisely lawmakers have to be thorough in their choice, and there are 3 importan
. i think lindsay graham and others have real concerns and should have their questions answered. they'll be answered today and could have been prior to today. this is to shut up debate and move the issue forward. i agree with lindsay, providing those questions are answered, he'll get a full and fair vote probably after they come back from recess. >> there are two sets of questions, one is on what the administration did about bin gaza and others concern financial issues that came up in senator hagel's confirmation hearing. how much of a delay or distraction or risk will be this be for hagel? >> the bottom line is the senators have the right to inquire and do due diligence and be satisfied before they vote. when secretary pan leon panetta, i voted for him. there's a process. when it's fully adhered to, he'll move forward. >> neil: do you think something went wrong or do you think the administration, rather than appoint a maverick like chuck hagel, it would be an easy slam dunk through the senate. yet the confirmation hearing got to be contentious. what happened? >> bottom line is people
, governor rendell. lindsay graham has been having meetings with the tea partiers, the club for growth. he is intent on solidifying the political base because he is worried about the next election, and if lindsey graham wasn't so worried, maybe there would be more bipartisanship in the upper chamber, and maybe all these legislative -- this kabuk eh dance would never happen brsh. >> that's a hard thinking to do anything about. we had a chance to do something about a procedure that is dysfunctional and basically flawed, and we democrats took a pass on it. i go back to that. we're responsible for this. as to glen's point, glen, i brae agree with you. this was an isolated incident. it's not that big a deal. it's playing out at the same time when you have the head of the nra absolutely delivering one of the most racial overtoned, insane -- >> screeds, i have seen. not one republican standing up and saying this guy is nuts. we don't agree with anything he wrote. we're going to make our decision based on what's right for the american people, but this guy is nuts, and we just -- >> i told you -- i
, harry reid, and said this is the solution. >> all right. meanwhile, senator lindsay graham is suggesting one potential -- >> i'm sorry, could i interrupt? i had a munchkin in my mouth. >> no, you can't have those. you're supposed to have your greek yogurt. >> i'm trying to make a point with a visual aid. this is like defense spending. done. gone. >> before the day has even started, you've just -- give those to me. >> i'm not homer simpson. what do you make of what woodward said? >> the president's in charge. he's got to figure out a way to stop the sequester. i think the symbolism of the last couple weeks haven't been great. he's not really out there leading a new path towards figuring out how to avoid something he says is a bad idea and promised as a candidate wouldn't happen. >> okay. john, joe's mouth is full. what do you think? >> i'm hap think the sequester be a bad thing. >> everyone says that. who's going to take the blame? who should? >> if it ends up going into effect, i think they're all going to take a lot of blame and they should. it's fair enough to say, if bob's reporting i
here. what this is about john mccain and lindsay graham, and they just don't like chuck hagel and that's what's driving this process more than anything else. personal differences more than real policy substance right now. >> my thanks to our special valentine's day panel. keith gets the prize for wearing red today. thank you so much. i went a little more cupid-y with mine. thanks so much. >> thank you. >>> if you work full-time, you shouldn't be in poverty. >> waging war over minimum wage. the president wants to raise it, but there's already some pushback from republicans. we are sounding off on that next. >>> plus, an olympic athlete and parolympic star. the details ahead. and our question of the day, is the nra's wayne lapierre hurting the republican party? we've all had those moments. when you lost the thing you can't believe you lost. when what you just bought, just broke. or when you have a little trouble a long way from home... as an american express cardmember you can expect some help. but what you might not expect, is you can get all this with a prepaid card. spends like cash.
and give lindsay graham more of what he wants if not all of what he wants, more of what he wants as it relates to the specific timeline on benghazi, and then almost certainly the hagel nomination goes forward, or we will not and to be honest, andrea, the way that politics works, i'm not sure that if there isn't -- harry weed comes out and says there's going to be a vote foam, if they put it off, they go out of session for a week and come back. i don't know if chuck hagel is able politically only, politically speaking only, to survive that. i think that's the calculation the white house is making right now as if you don't give in in some regard you clearly imperil chuck hagel's no, ma'am nation. not to say you doom it, but you imperil it because it makes that 60 votes harder to get to. if have you to put it off, politics being -- politics as a vacuum, you'll have more and more doubt flood in the longer you delay thee thipgsz. they know all this, and i think they'll probably try to decide. should they give something to lindsey graham, and what should it be? >> is there much to give
the charge, republican lindsay graham, of south carolina. senator, you were telling me just before we went on the air that you just got new information about chuck hagel. what is it? >> well, on the day of the vote, there was a blog posting about a speech i think in 2007 or 2008 he made at rutgers university and the blogger was a supporter of senator hagel and put on his blog, 6 points of the speech, question-and-answer session and point 6 was allegedly senator hagel said that the u.s. state department was an adjunct of the israeli foreign minister's office, which i think would be breath taking if he said that, had such a view and i got a letter back from senator hagel, in response to my question, did you say that and do you believe that, and, the letter says he did not recall saying that and disavowed that statement. >> chris: is that enough for you? >> well if that is true, that would end the matter because he previously said in a book the jewish lobby intimidates members of congress, particularly the u.s. senate and makes us -- pushes us to make very bad decisions. if the second stateme
and decent upper body. >> chris talked about our riffing on lindsay graham. what's it like to meet her in person in he smells up magnolias in secret shame. poor lindsey. ever going to advise him. >> i just cannot get this off my trouser knee. the stain will not go -- does anyone have any shout. >> stephanie: katherine in california. hello, katherine. >> caller: good morning, mama and the mooks. >> stephanie: good morning. >> caller: two things quickly. first of all, that was not marco rubio last night. that was mitt romney in drag. i say he really did that. the other thing talking about the disrespect, the thing i found was so telling at the very beginning when they went on the supreme court alito scalia and thomas were not there. and i just thought -- you talk about the disrespect and between not standing up for the 102-year-old woman for her right to vote or the violence against women -- >> stephanie: they're like boo, boo 102-year-old woman. you're sticking around, sucking off the government tit die already. >> if you have any question that they didn't stamp a single point of disres
